2019 Fantasy Outlook
Ferguson, Oklahoma City's 2017 first-round pick, took on his biggest role yet, averaging 26.1 minutes across 74 starts in his second season. He filled in for the injured Andre Roberson, who missed all of last season after surgery on his kneecap. Ferguson's starting role didn't translate to fantasy value, however, and he averaged just 6.9 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists. Ferguson's playing time this season is contingent upon Roberson's health, but reports are that Roberson will be ready to go for opening tip. The rebuilding Thunder could still elect to give Ferguson steady playing time, but there are other options on the roster with higher upside. Regardless of playing time or role in 2019-20, Ferguson is unlikely to carry much fantasy value and can be confidently left off rosters in almost all formats. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

Ferguson was highly recruited out of high school in 2015 and 2016. However, after separate commitments to Alabama and then Arizona, he decided to play overseas. The guard signed a one-year agreement with the Adelaide 36ers of Australia's National Basketball League ahead of the 2016-17 season. Ferguson played in 30 of 31 games for the 36ers, averaging 4.6 points and 1.2 boards over 15 minutes of run. He delivered a season-high 13 points on two separate occasions. Ferguson's 36ers finished the regular season in first place, but they were eliminated in the playoff semifinals by the fourth-seeded Illawarra Hawks. He was then selected 21st overall in the 2017 NBA Draft by Oklahoma City.

Past Season Summaries
2018

After playing a very small role for the Oklahoma City Thunder as a rookie during the 2017-18 season, Terrance Ferguson took a big step forward in his sophomore campaign. Throughout the season he had stretches in which he looked like an impactful NBA starter. It was a promising development as the 6-foot-7 Oklahoma native started all 74 games in which he appeared. Ferguson averaged 6.9 points and 1.9 rebounds on 42.9 percent shooting. He was especially impressive during the month of January. In 13 games that month, the ultra-athletic guard averaged 10.8 points on 49.5 percent shooting and converted 47.9 percent of his three-pointers. After attempting 5.8 shots per game in the regular season, that number dropped to an even 5.0 in the playoffs. During Oklahoma City's first-round playoff series, Ferguson averaged 25.6 minutes per contest. He posted per-game averages of 5.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in the five-game battle. He also shot 38.9 percent from deep, averaging 1.4 three-pointers per contest.

2017

Ferguson took an unusual route to the NBA, skipping college to play professionally in Australia for the Adelaide 36ers. The shooting guard was then selected with the 21st pick of the 2017 NBA Draft by Oklahoma City. He appeared in 61 games during his rookie season, starting 12 of them. Ferguson averaged 3.1 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.3 assists over 12.5 minutes of run. He debuted on Oct. 19, scoring two points in 10 minutes against the Knicks. The guard was also assigned to the Oklahoma City Blue of the NBA G League in November. He played three games for the Blue, averaging 14.7 points and 1.3 steals. Ferguson started for the first time on Jan. 3 against the Lakers, scoring a career-high 24 points (9-for-12 FG) in 32 minutes. He scored in double digits five times in the season. The Thunder finished with a 48-34 record but lost to the Jazz in the first round of the playoffs. Ferguson appeared in three games, totaling three points, one rebound and one assist in just over six minutes.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
The 21st overall pick by the Thunder in 2017, Ferguson was able to see rotational in his 61 appearances (12 starts) as a rookie. He garnered 12.5 minutes per game, though wasn't a high-volume player, averaging 3.1 points. Still, he showed potential when seeing starter-level minutes, posting 11.7 points on 50.0 percent shooting from the field and 45.0 percent from distance during the three contests where he saw at least 30 minutes. Heading into his sophomore campaign, it’s unlikely Ferguson will see a significantly greater workload considering the addition of Dennis Schroder into the guard mix. Andre Roberson’s health, or lack thereof, also played a factor into Ferguson’s role last season. Even in deeper formats, it’s probably best to avoid Ferguson.
Drafted with the 21st overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the 19-year-old will spend his rookie season playing behind Paul George and Andre Roberson at shooting guard and small forward. Unlike most American-born rookies, Ferguson already has professional experience under his belt after spending this past year with the Adelaide 36ers in Australia. Despite that experience, his game is far from refined and he’ll likely begin the season taking a backseat to more established rotational wings like Doug McDermott and Alex Abrines. At six-foot-seven, Ferguson’s calling card is his perimeter defense, and he’ll have a great mentor in Roberson, who’s widely considered to be one of the best perimeter defenders in the league. However, that also means that Ferguson could have a tough time seeing significant minutes for the duration of Roberson’s new three-year contract.
